Petr Vabrousek wins Challenge Henley / UK


SLS3 Team athlete Petr Vabrousek raced his last "training race" before Kona. He won the Challenge Henley in the UK in a time of 8:37:58. Petr had, once again, one of the fastest running splits racing in his compression socks.  Up next is the Grand Finale in Kona. It is just 3 more weeks to recover for the Ironman Hawaii, but everyone who knows Petr, knows that recovery is not a problem for him.
